Technical Data
TrkA (Tyrosine Kinase Receptor A, Nerve Growth Factor Receptor, NGFR)
TrkA is a member of the trk proto-oncogene family and encodes a 140-kilodalton, membrane-spanning protein tyrosine kinase that is the functional receptor for nerve growth factor (NGF). NGF elicits the rapid phosphorylation of gp140trk on tyrosine residues leading to increased c-Fos expression, DNA synthesis and morphologic transformation. A decreased expression of TrkA on the striatal cholinergic neurons has been observed which may contribute, when it reaches a crucial threshold, to the death of cholinergic neurons observed in Alzheimer disease.

Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry, Immunohistochemistry
and Immunoprecipitation. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Immunohistochemistry: Frozen sections
Immunoprecipitation: Detects a band at ~140kD
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months after receipt. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
